In the last few years, Mexico has been victimized by industrial and urban growth that threatens its natural resources. The Mexican people are tired of pollution and concrete and have gotten together in a movement called "13 Pueblos in Defense of Water, Air and Land". This documentary portrays the struggle of the real Mexicans to hinder the implantation of garbage deposits in their ravines, to save their water sources and their agricultural, sacred territories, to preserve their culture, their language and their identity. This chronicle is a warning to the powerful, a solidary call to the citizens, an example of love for nature. In the land of Emiliano Zapata a new revolution is about to go off.
